It's never been tougher to be a teenager—or the parent of one. Thankfully, from your teen's first date to the next time they ask to borrow the car keys, this book will help you make the Bible your source for prayers that can powerfully influence your teen's life.

Bestselling author and Bible teacher Jodie Berndt has walked and prayed through the teen years with her four children. Drawing on the power of God's Word, this updated and expanded edition of Praying the Scriptures for Your Teens teaches you how to pray for all aspects of your teen's life, including:

  • Your teen's character
  • Your teen's relationships
  • Your teen's health and safety
  • Your teen's victory over temptation
  • . . . and so much more

With humor and a warm, personal style, Jodie reassures you that there is not a need your teen will face that God has not already thought of and provided for in his Word. No matter how far away our kids may be, they are never out of God's reach.

Praise for Praying the Scriptures for Your Teens:

"Trained in the trenches of praying her own children through their teen years (and beyond), Jodie Berndt's wisdom reads like pure encouragement from a gentle mentor. Intensely practical, honest, and relatable, Praying the Scriptures for Your Teens is far more than a book; it's a valuable tool for anyone who wants to be a warrior, a faithful intercessor in praying God's Word over the teens in their lives. What a vital resource to guide us as we pray our teens through one of the most intense seasons of their lives!"

—Katie Westenberg, author of I Choose Brave
